St. Patrick's Day dinner doesn't have to feature corned beef. An Irish beef stew, richly flavored with dark beer, braises to tenderness with carrots and onions. The stew is served with a scoop of traditional potato and cabbage colcannon.
Mini jam sandwiches coated in batter and deep fried until puffy and golden brown. You may use any jam you like, or try substituting butter and cinnamon sugar for variety. Either way, the ingredients are almost always on hand, and they reheat in the oven well, too. Couldn't be easier, and the kids will love them!
